GameFly sells digital download business

GameFly, the video game rental service, has announced it has sold its digital download service.

According to a notice on the site, that part of the business has been sold to AtGames Holding Ltd. GameFly will continue handling operations until later this year, or until the transition is complete.

"We at AtGames are excited about the next step and future of bringing games directly to your desktop," reads a statement from AtGames. "In holding true to the fantastic service GameFly Digital has provided, AtGames’ mission is to build upon an extensive product line-up, quality service, and great customer support. AtGames appreciates your continued business and looks forward to servicing the needs of consumers like yourself through innovation, continued extensive library of great games, and build an incredible community of like-minded gamers. Thank you again for your patience and understanding during this transition period."

This applies to GameFly's digital service, so the company's standard by-mail rental service appears to be unphased.
